Husband Celebrates 67th Anniversary Outside Wife’s Nursing Home Due to COVID-19 Concerns

In the midst of the chaos that is the coronavirus pandemic, families have been forced to say goodbye to loved ones for some time in fear of infecting those who may be vulnerable. That includes family members who may have a medical worker in the family, people who are immunocompromised, and the elderly.

But for one man, Bob from Vernon, Connecticut, coronavirus didn’t stop him from celebrating his 67th wedding anniversary outside his wife’s nursing home in Stafford Springs on Saturday. He brought a sign outside her window that said, “I’ve loved you 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary.”

His wife Nancy’s response? Blowing kisses from the window of her second-floor room.

In the coming months we’re going to see lots of stories like this. And while we’re sad loved ones are separated, let’s hope stories like this can be examples that there is sunshine at the end of all this rain, and that we should stay hopeful for the future.
